september. the budgets have gone out. paul ryan said here is mine. take a look. i balance it in ten years. chris van hollen on the democratic side said i have a better idea. in the house, we like to have our version and it will be $1.2 trillion in new taxes, 200 billion in stimulus. now, ladies and gentlemen, if you want a democratic house in 2014, that's what your country is going to look like. >> steve: later today the house of representatives is going to consider paul ryan's budget, plus they're going to consider five alternative budgets. one, patty murr i wouldn't he -- murray, the democrat senator from her state. the congressional black caucus', progressive caucus' budget, the republican study committee budget, which balances the budget in five years, not in ten years like paul ryan's. and chris van hollen's budget as well. meanwhile, the haggling continues in washington. the charm offensive of the president, he was being honest, wasn't he? he really was trying to charm the republicans. yet, brit hume was on last night with bret baier on his former program and said whether it worked,
the republicans and chairman paul ryan once again put forth a budget that hurts women. there's no morality in a budget that takes food from the mouths of struggling women and children while slashing taxes for millionaires and billionaires. these attacks on breast cancer research, on child care, on the affordable care act for families, on maternal health and on education are not what we owe our mothers, our sisters and our daughters. make no mistake, women, especially poor women, will shoulder the burdens of these cuts. at a time when so many americans are struggling just to make ended meet, we must do more -- ends meet, we must do more, not less, to provide a strong safety net for all americans. i call on my colleagues to support a budget that provides compassion of the government, to help american women in need and invest in the future that they deserve. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from texas rise? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman

these days. they're going to go with it, they're going to make it work. and for paul ryan to be fighting that battle all over again -- after it was sort of was at the core of the 2012 election, some might argue it's what helped the president win re-election. they're going to argue that again? why? and the president will, will fight to defend medicare. he will fight to defend medicaid. because they're crucial to obama care. now james said i don't know why he's cutting medicare. there are going to be some strategic cuts around the borders. but the president is not going to give up on medicare and he's not going to give up on medicaid. and that was really what the 2012 election in terms of domestic policy was really all about. >> james, is this terrible strategy for the republican party in the long-term? >> i cannot believe that it's four and a half months after the election and they haven't sort of public strategic debate among each other and they're all sort of out there attacking each other. i've been around politics for a long time and a lot of people on this panel, i've been through a
, not shifting the costs as paul ryan is suggesting. he left pretty confident with the solid commitment to the middle class that he expressed in his campaign, and the solid commitment to revenue as part of the budget deal. he gave us confidence, i would say. even though some of these things are going to be raised by the republicans we have to evaluate them if over all it's a solid deal for the middle class. we're not going to chase a bad deal. >> john: that's great to hear. of course the president has been vocal about a possible willingness to support a reform. but you congressman welsh you have a proposal that will save $156 billion over the next ten years. >> right now medicare has great benefit and drug benefit program part d. we pay retail prices even though we buy wholesale. if we purchased drugs like we do in the v.a. or medicare, we would save taxpayers $156 billion a year. right now in medicare if we buy a certain drug, and buy that same drug in the medicaid or v.a. program, we would pay 60% less. so we're buying wholesale and paying retail. and obviously that makes no sense. it

what paul ryan proposed a few days ago. so that is a big difference. it made it easier for him to balance the budget by having lower levels of defense spending. would've been almost impossible to balance the budget over 10 years. >> what about what was put forth by senate democrats and house members? the increases that he wants or about $600 over 10 years. democrats want an increase and i'm sure republicans way for democrats to figure out where they are. democrats are talking about getting rid of tax breaks and taxes. limiting the values of certain tax breaks. that is what they are talking about right now. they want to get rid of the tax breaks and get rid of them. >> the paul ryan plan a party takes into account these rates approved by congress. >> yes, that is right. about $600 billion in new taxes over 10 years. it helps to balance the budget. >> any surprises from the senate budget committee markup yesterday? >> well, a little surprised that she was able to hold the line. ten republicans and democrats on the committee. but she could not afford to use a single one. she had b

budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for obamacare. 1.6 and 1.5 is a 3 trillion-dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passes and a never balances because they turn round and spend another -- hundreds of millions of dollars more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. they do more spending with more taxes but with the brian budget does is very interesting for the republican future. it reforms entitlement, protect
he said. he said we've got billions of dollars in paul ryan's budget over here. i said no, no. i'm talking about this budget. you claim you're not scoring as an increase in spending $1.2 trillion? that you allowed to occur by eliminating the reduction in spending required in current law as part of the law of the united states today and will not be changed? this is baloney. surely congress will never change this. surely we won't go back on the promise we made in 2011 when we raised the debt ceiling. but anyway, this is what the associated press said about it, because the democrats want to restore $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts over the same period, cuts imposed by washington's failure to reach a broader budget pact. they couldn't reach an agreement so these automatic cuts occurred. murray's blueprint increases spending. you take the $1.2 trillion there and you have taxes increases over here, but the increases in spending are greater than the taxes, and they conclude that it increases spending overall. increases spending overall. while the chairman and, i guess, the budge
conservatives they need to eliminate the education department, always good with this crowd. paul ryan wants to balance the budget in ten years. rand paul says let's balance the budget in five years. what we heard there was him saying that the party needed to be very different and he made an explicit appeal to the facebook generation. also something very different from the last couple of republican nominees. mitt romney and john mccain. on the topic of personal liberty, also a shocking story that is electrifying the political world this morning, senator rob portman of ohio announced in his home state papers this morning that he is giving up his opposition to gay marriages. this is right ahead of the supreme court oral arguments on march 26th and 27th. in the columbus dispatch today senator portman says his son came to him in 2011 and said he was gay. wasn't something he chose but he wanted his parents to know that. senator portman said he had always been against gay marriage because of his faith and tradition but this caused him to rethink it and he is proud of will and the way he handled it
think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform
and the party of old. >> bret: we also heard from paul ryan today. take a listen. >> we don't hide behind our beliefs. we argue for them. a budget is a list of numbers. expression of thegones philosophy. our budget draws a sharp contrast with the left. it says to the people unmistakable terms, they are the party of shared hardship. we are the party of equal opportunity. >> bret: charles? >> i think it shows how strong a bench we have and how good the prospects are in the future. i'm less cynical than my compadres here. i thought romney gave gracious speech. the heartening element is the way a young crowd, quite conservative crowd cheered and greeted him with equal grace. which was nice. usually you pick a loser to -- kek loser to the curb in politics. that was the opposite. >> bret: portman announcement, john, significant? >> it's significant. i'm sympathetic to the position on this. the politics are problematic because the idea he only changes the position when it affected him with his own son. that will have repercussions. >> bret: chuck, north korea, beefing um securit up security,e defens

'll face within each chamber. it is what happens when paul ryan and patty murray tried to reconcile the two. and there will certainly be an attempt to do that. because these are the two packages, or this is the vehicle that the president is looking to to try to get something larger on the debt and deficit. because there are very few remaining paths for the president to try to get a grand bargain. one is the budget process that is commencing simultaneously in each chamber for the first time in a good number of years. so this is an unusual circumstance and one that provides an opportunity for the president, however, like i said, very, very different plans. >> let's talk about that. you wrote a piece that i really enjoy. in that piece you wrote, you called the budget process as we now know it, a sham of sorts. how so? >> well interesting budget doesn't have a force of law. it isn't signed by the president of the united states. we didn't have a budget from 1789 to 1921. until that time, the congress just passed appropriations bills, funded wars, civil wars, the end of slavery, et cetera, et cet

said it had no impact in choosing paul ryan over portman. second, why is it necessary to have firsthand experience with a person or situation in order to figure out how to do the right thing? is an existential experience necessary to have existential position necessary for consent? >> i think senator portman made some pretty big inroads last week, but i think it's about being decent, and respect, people don't deserve to be disrespected. >> priebus stopped short of endorsing portman's position and obviously the rnc does not. here's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. and racial justice. churches do change. and their members as well. meanwhile, hillary clinton expressed her support of marriage equality in this advocacy video. >> i support it individually and as a matter of policy and law. like so many others, my personal views have been shap

-term budget deficit and the house is poised to take up congressman paul ryan's budget tomorrow. joining me right now republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee. i want to start by showing everybody the new poll numbers. both sides have taken a hit when it comes to the budget hit. 67% disapprove of the way the president has dealt with the budget. 79% disapprove of the republicans on this. people at home think it's just absolutely ridiculous. will those numbers push both sides to find a compromise before it's too late, before the numbers continue to go down any further? >> you. thomas, i think you're right. they do want to see a resolution to this and what they're wanting to see a resolution to first is the out of control spending. get this out of control spending under control. and that's what we hear from both sides of the aisle, from our constituents, regardless of whether they're democrat, independent, republican, libertarian, you name it. they say, washington spends too much. you don't have a revenue problem. you have a spending problem. get it all under control. that is wha
and that crowd are for, there's a certain number -- and especially paul ryan paul ryan is probably the most directly and obviously guilty of saying what they mean in regard to how heel deals with health care and those kinds of things. in what they talk about in his speech to the ayn rand foundation and what have you, there is a lot of elbow in the ribs about you know what i really mean you just can't save everybody, and i don't know if we are throwing good money at bad keeping you alive if you are sick. and this is coming from people who are already rich. let's actually -- let's take call, because there are a couple of people that have been holding on and this kind of relates to that. hi katie in hudson mass. are you there? >> caller: yes i'm here. i just wanted to ask jacki in particular, because i -- she might have some incite into this is -- like the era, what is the status of that? i knew it was ratified by a few states and things, but if we actually passed the era wouldn't it solve a lot of these things. the equal pay, things like that you know? even, you know, how
the house republican, paul ryan, budget plan. >> hand out more budget-busting tax breaks for the wealthy, and to pay for these wasteful tax breaks, ld -- it would end medicare guarantee, it would raise tax on middle class families. to appease the tea party, the ryan republican budget would risk recovery, and that's just a price too high. >> reporter: needless to say, republicans disagree. they believe that their budget which ultimately, they say, would balance, would provide more opportunity and more jobs for the american people, jon. jon: obviously, both sides trying to get their points out. what are the republicans saying about these budgetary matters? >> reporter: they're going after the budget that was proposed by senate budget chair patty murray. they say it increases spending, increases the debt, never balances and raises taxes. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell a few moments ago called it extreme. >> a party that once cared about hard working american families seems of to have gone off the leftmost edge of the reservation with this budget. d.c. democrats' priorities are jus
the blueprint, which is prompted by paul ryan. his budget was criticized for bold spending cuts, but they balanced the budget in 10 years. >> the reason we are balancing the budget is because it is the necessary means to amend. it balances the budget without raising taxes. we are actually doing this. >> district proposal bouncing the book in four years, it is unlikely the house will approve that budget plan in lieu of ryan's plan. it outlines a 6 trillion-dollar deficit reduction over the next decade. speak evening of the senate side, of course. they are at work as well. that is really to keep the government up and running. >> exactly. it just convened about 30 minutes ago. they then went on to the budget resolution. >> i am amazed. stunned. republicans have blocked this and begin debate on the budget. we are all concerned about the impact these budget cuts. they are senseless and we should do away with them. >> you can see democrats in patty murray have their own plan. $1.85 trillion. they blast spending like medicare and medicaid, and it should be a lot on the docket today. ma
. the republican-led house, by contrast, senator paul ryan and his team has a plan that they'll vote on today that has passed -- will balance the budget. and they've passed a budget every year. and our colleagues in the sena senate, while refusing to pass a budget, have delighted in complaining about the leadership and the responsible action of the house by blaming everything they can think of and more on unkind paul ryan, who wants to push old fox off the cliff. and that's not true. he's got good plans. he's got growth plans. but what i -- i would say to you is, this congress, this senate has done nothing while being critical of everyone else. last year, there -- we've had several budgets come up and i voted for several of them. my democratic colleagues have voted for not one. they have voted against the ryan budget. they voted against the president's budget. they voted against the toomey budget. they voted against the rand paul budget. voted against them all. but yet they don't seem to be in the least bit hesitant just to attack everybody else. so i think we have a moral duty to balance the
in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work
. we've got paul ryan and a slew of smart, young, and energetic governors ready to take america into the future. [applause] and, the other guys? they got hillary and joe biden. [laughter] so don't tell me, folks, don't tell me, we are the party of compassion. we are the party of immigrants. we are the party of hard-work being taxpayers. we are the party of mobility, opportunity, growth, life, liberty, optimism, and inthey vision. [applause] -- innovation. and look, it is time we started acting like it. and once we do we'll have our comeback. [applause] now i know that some on the right have argued in recent months that the republican party is stuck on austerity. that all we do is talk about cuts. that we don't talk enough about the middle class. well like them i believe that those who stand to benefit most from the restraint of government are the poor and the middle class. but i also know that the only people who set policy are those who win elections. we're not going to do it by dropping a policy paper in everybody's mailbox. there is plenty of openness to new ideas, i assure y
to lead this party? >> yeah, paul ryan gave it an interesting appealing thought-provoking speech. and marco rubio gave a very emotional speech. rick santorum gave one of the more barn burning rhetorically -- his speech was as goods on the merits of did it move people. >> and he said basically if we had better candidates we might have won the white house. >> yeah. >> bill: how about band paul. >> rand paul's moment was ta very big moment. he came out with the big binders that were the entire transcript of his 13-hours of filibuster. and there were hundreds of people with these stand with rand signs. he has inherited his dad's organization, fervor basically, and he is expanding it. and he could be the most interesting person on the right, because he has this broadening ability to get into the left with his anti-war libertarianism. >> bill: i love where rand paul says we have to reshape everything to move forward and he gets 25% of the votes and then marco rubio who is saying we don't need any new ideas, and he gets 24% of the vote. so it seems like they are spli
, the house starts a debate on paul ryan's budget. they will be debating back and voting on amendments. we told you yesterday, it is official today, that the assault weapons ban will not be part of a larger gun control senate package. the senate majority leader told it did notesterday, have enough votes read host: dianne feinstein said yesterday, she tried her best but it was not good enough. the washington post has this headline -- host: this is the front page of the daily news, shame on the united states -- host: on president obama's visit you can seebank -- posters that palestinians were holding up with the words, no hope on them. following up yesterday on the south carolina first district race, here is the state newspaper this morning. the former governor is in a runoff with other room -- republicans -- host: also, this morning, the politico front page -- even political viewers might be shocked -- also, the paper is noting that the senate is moving forward for a continued resolution to fund the government for six months. john in illinois, what are your thoughts on the 10th anniversary
the charm offensive, met with the republicans and paul ryan and had the dinner and there was the wine and merlot and okay, look, i'm trying. and now we get the latest poll out and shows he's still 47% approval rating, 47% disapprove, which is down consistently from where it had been just a few weeks ago. >> well, maybe the israeli embassy is on to something there and he could get like sophia, blanch, get the girls together. >> megyn: well done. >> do like a charm-- i know, i'm hip, i'm down, circa 1989. no he, t no, the situation for the president, second term irony and the president made it more difficult for him to layout a bold agenda when you get started. you come in, make a bold agenda and try to blow up the republicans with the sequester and it doesn't work, oh, i'm losing altitude in my approval poll and not going to have as much weight to throw around and i'll turn into a lame duck. then the charm offensive, hey, i'm willing to eat with you, and talk to you and sit in the same room with you. and do that for a while and guess what, the base says this guy was lying to us, leadin
